Hi, I have been experiencing some problems with the wireless on my mbp. Basically, if i use my home network, it seems to work fine for the most part. But, when i use it on my University's wife network, lately it starts to act up. Sometimes I am unable to even see a network available where there actually is one...and i know that it is not the network because all of my friends who have windows laptops are able to connect....and yes...I am getting made fun of
Also, it starts to getting soo slow to the point that it wont load anything...but it is still connected. But then after about 5 mins or so...it will start working again...:S

Any ideas what this could be? and anyone experiencing similar issues?

Thanks
